Question DPF on Civic

Does any of the Diesel Civic's (post 2006 model) have a DPF fitted?

Only if you only ever drive in traffic
I have a dpf on my Octavia and I have to drive it for 15 minutes at 60mph ....only if the regeneration light comes on.
I have not seen any smoke, ever and the exhausts have no soot on them at all.

That is one of the reasons why I absolutely don't want a DPF: What if I just arrive at work and the light goes on? "Sorry boss, I'll be an hour late, because I have to drive to some highway first to be able to drive 60 for at least 15 minutes. I hope there are no jams. And then I can get back..." Silly!
And the wat happens when you clear this filter? Clogged up soot in the filter, that has even gradually diminished the engine power, has to be "burned" down to smaller particles and then get blown into the atmosphere. These small particles are a far bigger ecological problem then the soot itself! But hey, in the exhaust tests the car is performing excellent!
